What Is The Order?

The Order of the Good Death turns ten years old in 2021. In those ten years we have grown into the home of the worldwide death positive movement, which aims to educate, inform, empower, and protect communities and individuals regarding their rights around the end of life experience.

We do this through a YouTube series, articles, events, resources, a podcast, and a variety of social media platforms. The Order also provides financial support for other nonprofits and individuals who are tackling urgent death related issues within their communities.

We help to pass end of life related legislation and advocate for policies that are low cost, environmentally friendly, and ensure that each individual's end of life wishes are honored regardless of gender, racial, sexual, or cultural identity.
